Jason Licht says the NFL is a pass-fail league, and he’s right. The grades are in for the 2017 Buccaneers and they get a big, fat “F.” Virtually nothing went right after a 2-1 start and Buc fans are naturally worried this slide will continue under the same braintrust. There is plenty of cause for concern. Tampa Bay plays in the league’s premier division, and that’s not likely to change as long as Drew Brees, Cam Newton and Matt Ryan are flinging footballs in the NFC South.
The Bucs aren’t set at running back by any means, but they shouldn’t feel desperate, either. The emergence of Peyton Barber late in the season should give this coaching staff a level of comfort heading into 2018. Barber is no Todd Gurley, Le’Veon Bell or Alvin Kamara, but he just proved he can get the job done when finally given a chance. Barber has a long way to go in pass protection and he needs to show more skill as a receiver out of the backfield.
It’s one of the great sound bites in NFL history and Herm Edwards is still asked about it more than 15 years later. “You play to win the game,” Edwards bellowed that day as head coach of the New York Jets, reminding the media of Job 1. Here’s my contribution, and I’m sure Herm would be proud:So how about it, Mr. Licht? When that incredible Vikings-Saints game ended in dramatic fashion Sunday evening, I kept thinking about Drew Brees.
On this day in 1979, the Say-Hey Kid was awarded a spot in baseball's Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. And yes, 23 voters left Willie Mays off their ballot, immediately qualifying them as future members of Congress.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
